Rotorua Canopy Tours is an adventure that puts you at the heart of the forest restoration story, with every ticket purchased contributing to conservation efforts which include reintroducing kiwis back into the forest. To date, 250 hectares of the Dansey Road Scenic Reserve have been restored, removing thousands of predators and helping birdlife flourish and replenishing tree health.

Equal parts inspiring, fun and educational, this number one ranked outdoor experience in New Zealand (Trip Advisor) is a must-do adventure activity with brain and heart.
